This is a raw denim that over time will become your go-to jean. The Coda is a slimmed down version of the men’s fit, with smaller back pockets and a narrower leg. Slim but not skinny and with a rise that sits just above the hip bone.

There’s no stretch in the fabric but it softens with age. Break them in gently and over time they will become your faves for sure.

www.bourgeois-tamuseum.org.il

Curators: Jerry Gorovoy and Suzanne Landau

For the first time in Israel, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is presenting a comprehensive solo exhibition dedicated to groundbreaking French-American artist Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010), one of the most brilliant, prominent, and influential women in 20th century art. The exhibition explores the duality in Bourgeois’s concepts and forms; the dialogues between inside and outside, conscious and unconscious, male and female, the body and architecture, passive and active.

Bourgeois, who passed away at the age of 98, left a fascinating body of work combining sexuality and psychoanalysis, which greatly contributed to the development of Feminist theory. Her artistic career spanned seven decades, but it was not until 1982, when Bourgeois, by then 71-years old, became the first woman artist to be given a large-scale sculpture retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, that she got her big break and gained wide recognition. This turning point confirmed her status as an inspiring, leading contemporary artist whose dramatic works—which explore family relations, parenthood, marital relationships, femininity, masculinity, pain, passion, and aggression—are profound and revealing in their intricacy.

The exhibition Twosome, focusing on relationships, will feature over 50 works—monumental as well as small sculptures, textile works, and drawings—from all the major phases and periods in Bourgeois’s career, including some of her best-known pieces. It will include, among others, the iconic steel sculpture Spider Couple (2003)—the spider being a hallmark of Bourgeois; the provocative sculpture Fillette (Sweeter Version) (1968–99)—a phallus representing frail, vulnerable masculinity; and Passage Dangereux (1997)—the largest and most significant work in the series of Cells, which comprises enclosed cage-like spaces containing symbolic domestic objects.

The exhibition will be centered on Bourgeois’s monumental sculpture Twosome, created in 1991 and unveiled in a show at the New York MoMA later that year. This rarely exhibited sculpture now lends its name to this exhibition at Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The work is made of two large steel tanks flooded with flickering red light, the smaller tank rolling in and out of the larger tank. This repeated mechanical movement elicits sexual connotations, although Bourgeois herself maintained that it addressed mother-child relations—the basic, primary two-person relationship which determines all future relationships.

The exhibition Twosome was produced by Tel Aviv Museum of Art in collaboration with the Easton Foundation. It is accompanied by a bi-lingual (Hebrew-English) catalogue.

Aesop – Tacit Eau de Parfum

Aesop
Tacit Eau de Parfum

A contemporary interpretation of classical colognes.

Tacit is at once familiar in its citrus notes and distinctly contemporary in liberal use of Basil Grand Vert. And as the title implies, somewhat elusive in character – more readily experienced than articulated. The formulation was born of two key inspirations: the fresh notes found in traditional colognes; and the culture, topography, and fragile, perfumed vegetation of the Mediterranean coast.

Limited Edition Kuroki Selvedge Girlfriend Jean

Limited Edition Kuroki Selvedge Girlfriend Jean

This is the first Women’s short run we have ever done. And it’s the first women’s selvedge denim we have ever used. And it comes in our best-selling fit, The Girlfriend fit.
We wanted the denim to be light, so it would suit the relaxed Girlfriend fit. Ours is only 8.4oz. Tick. We wanted it to have a classic white line selvedge. Tick. We wanted it to have a vintage indigo dye that gets better with age. Tick. And lastly, we wanted to be able to wear them with sneakers or heels. Tick.

Lower in the rise, sitting just above the ankle. The Girlfriend Jean is our most relaxed women’s fit and has quickly become the most sought after cut of the year. An authentic five-pocket jean. Slim leg. Rinsed once. Zip fly. Signature red owl rivet on the back pocket. Made in Wales.

To make this available in a selvedge denim, we have made the fit a straight slim leg, giving you more room in the hips and thighs, and sitting just right on the waist
Each pair will come with a Hiut Denim tote bag.

We will be shipping them from 8th September. As they are cut to order, we will take payment when ordered. Previous short runs have sold out within 24 hours, so if you are tempted, our advice is not to delay. We will only make 20 of them.

Thank you for your support. Your belief in quality makes this all work.

Czech photographer Hana Knížová portrays youth in all stages of being. Whether it’s siblings with an uncanny resemblance, the inhabitants of a youth detention centre in northern Czech Republic or aspiring actors, screenwriters and directors in and around Hollywood, Knížová never fails to capture the emotional subtleties of her subjects. The fact that her model’s faces are frequently covered renders their body language all the more powerful, making them appear like entangled sculptures at times. Using unconventional models and alternating between staged and impromptu shoots, Knížová hopes to create a time capsule for her subjects that will later allow them to look back at these days filled with fickleness, uncertainty and great aspirations and hope.

Knížová lives and works in London, where her works have been met with critical acclaim: her pictures were shown in the prestigious Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition. In 2013, she was awarded the John Kobal New Work Award by the National Portrait Gallery. SLEEK presents a selection of works from her Young Hollywood and her Couple Exchange series as well as a picture from Ellyana, a series which was sparked by her interest in albinism.

“The exhibition is conceived as a scripted space, like an automaton, producing different temporalities, a rhythm, an itinerary, and a duration. The visitor is guided through the spaces by the appearance and orchestration of sounds and images… a mental choreography.” – Philippe Parreno

Philippe Parreno is interested more in the dynamics of how a work of art is shown to the public than in its actual production, and in his films, installations, performances and texts, he subverts the codes normally applied to exhibition spaces. He places the construction of the exhibition at the heart of his process, approaching it through different formats and redefining the exhibition experience as a coherent object rather than as a collection of individual works.

Produced in conjunction with the H {N)Y P N(Y} OSIS exhibition – curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Alex Poots, with consulting curator Tom Eccles, in the spaces of the Park Avenue Armory in New York – and with Hypothesis – curated by Andrea Lissoni at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan – this monograph offers a rich critical overview of his work, with essays by Cyril Béghin, Molly Nesbit, Brian O’Doherty and Adam Thirlwell, and two interviews with Hans Ulrich Obrist and Andrea Lissoni. It is thus an invaluable research tool for studying one of the most influential and charismatic figures on the contemporary art scene.

The 144 pages hardcover contains a story shot in six cities all over the world, covering pictures of more than forty extraordinary people all captured by one person. His name is Sander Dekker.

An admiration for the special, eccentric and odd ones is the common theme in the work of this Amsterdam-based photographer. But don’t try to make him a voyeur, that would be too easy and blunt. In “The Project” it is all about authenticity, trust and improvisation. Together with a great dose of humour and lots of positive energy this leads to great pictures in which unexpected situations are turned into magical moments.

In addition to the photographs, the book also contains short stories which provide a beautiful insight of his models.

Odarodle – An imaginary their_story of naturepeoples, 1535-2017

Odarodle - An imaginary their_story of naturepeoples, 1535-2017

Exhibition 21 July 2017 – 16 October 2017
Odarodle – An imaginary their_story of naturepeoples, 1535-2017

Vernissage: July 20th 2017, 6 pm

Pre-Opening Manifestation Parade: July 20th, 4.30 pm (gathering in front of “Speisekammer im Eldorado” supermarket, corner of Motzstraße/Kalckreutstraße)

The artistic research exhibition Odarodle – an imaginary their_story of naturepeoples, 1535-2017 casts, for the first time, a postcolonial perspective on the collection and history of the Schwules Museum*. The exhibition proposes a thought-exercise: that there are problematic associations between the museum representation of homosexualities and the ethnological display formats developed over the course of European colonialism. Odarodle presents the work of 16 artists, mostly Berlin-based, including 10 newly commissioned pieces. These contemporary positions respond to the Museum, its archive, and its practices as both research material and aesthetic medium.

Odarodle specifically turns “Eldorado” backwards. As a site of multiple origins, it is a threefold reference: an historical exhibition, a legendary night club, and a colonial myth. Though the commitment of the Schwules Museum* to enable LGBTIQ cultural visibility bespeaks a greater political agenda of liberation, the contemporary relevance of such a (self-)representational undertaking requires revision and reflection. A more expansive, less obvious scale of critical engagement, as proposed by Odarodle, considers the deeper operations within Modernity that have attempted to exhibit forms of life, their bodies, and their habitats. This is where the desire to show the manners and mores of a kind of “people” and their “nature” confronts the postcolonial challenges of the ethnographic museum: a site that has historically sought to visualize the existence of the “Other” and, in doing so, maintains the “Other” as a normative construction.

The project’s primary point of departure is the seminal exhibition Eldorado: Homosexuelle Frauen und Männer in Berlin 1850-1950 – Geschichte, Alltag, und Kultur, which opened in 1984 at the Berlin Museum in West-Berlin and is considered by the Schwules Museum* as its institutional origin. Starting with a range of legal, medical, and literary discussions on the “nature” of sexuality and the “identity” of same-sex love, the exhibition Eldorado turned its focus onto the cultural and sociopolitical climate of the ‘20s and ‘30s in Berlin. Documents, photographs, prints, and paintings were displayed in vitrines and on thematically-arranged presentation boards, while specific “environments” were recreated with everyday objects to convey atmospheres – the gay boudoir, the lesbian café, the Tiergarten cruising area.

Undressed – Mario Testino

Mario Testino. Undressed
Matthias Harder, Manfred Spitzer, Carine Roitfeld
Softcover, 24.4 x 34.5 cm, 144 pages
ISBN 978-3-8365-6646-9
Multilingual Edition: English, French, German

Mario Testino’s Undressed removes various layers. Coinciding with an exhibition conceived exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, this intimate series explores the notion of undressing in photography as much as it lays Testino’s archive bare, probing beyond the photographer’s established public image to reveal a deeper understanding of his practice and oeuvre.

The 50 featured photographs center on the naked body, alternately exploring and pushing the traditions and boundaries between sex, gender identity, and fashion. Honoring the influence of Helmut Newton, the images become abstracted body landscapes, the protagonists appearing as mere form, a torso, even a statue.

A special highlight are previously unseen photographs shot in the Testino studio, in which an exuberant atmosphere intermingles with the implicit frisson of nudity and where playfully amorous dynamics never slip into the obscene or pornographic.

Testino’s lineup ranges from supermodel protagonists, such as Kate Moss and Amber Valletta, to anonymous, androgynous men; from individual portraits to group photos. We see many intimate moments, some caught candidly, some consciously orchestrated, such as a young man shaving a woman’s upper pubic hair in a luxurious bathroom. Following in the tradition of SIR, many of the images may be seen to redefine masculine paradigms in the same way that Newton created his own brand of female beauty.

As emotions, aesthetics, and bodies meet, Testino grants new insight into his world-famous work. The images are accompanied by an introduction from curator Matthias Harder, a candid conversation piece with Carine Roitfeld, as well as an essay from psychiatrist and psychologist Manfred Spitzer who offers a neuroscientific perspective on our visual perception of bodies and beauty.

This is an anthology of essays that first appeared in The Artist as Curator, a series that occupied eleven issues of Mousse from no. 41 (December 2013/January 2014) to no. 51 (December 2015/January 2016). It set out to examine what was then a profoundly influential but still under-studied phenomenon, a history that had yet to be written: the fundamental role artists have played as curators. Taking that ontologically ambiguous thing we call “the exhibition” as a critical medium, artists have often radically rethought conventional forms of exhibition making. This anthology surveys seminal examples of such exhibitions from the postwar to the present, including rare documents and illustrations.

It includes an introduction and the twenty essays that first appeared in Mousse, a newly commissioned afterword by Hans Ulrich Obrist, and two additional essays that appear here for the first time, discussing twenty-two exhibitions by the Avant-Garde Argentinian Visual Artists Group; Mel Bochner; Marcel Broodthaers; Hank Bull, Shen Fan, Zhou Tiehai, Shi Yong, and Ding Yi; John Cage; Judy Chicago, Miriam Schapiro, and the CalArts Feminist Art Program; Collaborative Projects Inc.
